A decagon is a 2-dimensional polygon with ten edges[1]. The Bowers acronym for a decagon is dec[2].

Structure and Sections

The regular decagon has each angle at 144 degrees. It can be seen as a truncated pentagon.

Radii

  • Vertex radius: $ \frac{1+\sqrt{5}}{2}l $
  • Edge radius: $ \frac{\sqrt{5+2\sqrt{5}}}{2}l $

Angles

  • Vertex angle: 144º

Vertex coordinates

The vertices of a regular decagon of side 2 can be given by all changes of sign of:

  • (1, √(5+2√5))
  • ((3+√5)/2, √((5+√5)/2))
  • (1+√5, 0)

Related shapes

  • Dual: Self-dual
  • Conjugate: Decagram
  • Vertex figure: Line segment, length $ \sqrt{\frac{5++\sqrt{5}}{2}} $
  • Third diagonal: Length $ \frac{3+\sqrt{5}}{2} $
  • Fourth diagonal: Length $ \sqrt{5+2\sqrt{5}} $
  • Long diagoal: Length $ 1+\sqrt{5} $
